The Attic offers a unique educational experience for children ages 3 -18, one which supports a sense of self, a passion for learning, community, and childhood through our K-12 program and the Field & Forest Outdoor Preschool program. Many educative practices go into creating our progressive educative model. We offer a low child:teacher ratio in a multiage environment. Our teachers are passionate, committed to each and every child. We understand the importance of freedom within structure, and of developmentally-appropriate education. Core classes meet three days per week, Monday through Wednesday, to give children and their families time to pursue their interests. Optional classes meet on Thursday and Friday. Above all, the Attic does not use grades, rewards, or punishments. This supports the development of intrinsic motivation, a key Attic value.
We invite you to peruse our website and learn more details about our unique program, to help you decide if you would like your child and family to become a part of our community, or if you’d like to come learn from us for your own professional development as a teacher or parent. We invite you to visit our learning community if you like what you read. The kids at the Attic amaze visitors – because they are themselves. They are valued for who they are. They are intrinsically motivated. They are allowed to learn at their level. They become empowered, self-confident teens who are active learners in life.
We welcome your interest in the Attic, and hope to see you at our Open House for prospective parents and educators, our Foundations classes, or other parent and teacher education opportunities. Welcome!
